The Sights on the way to Gythio

Sounds great.

The Peloponnese or Peloponnesus is a large peninsula and region in southern Greece, forming
the part of the country south of the Gulf of Corinth. In ancient time, The Peloponnese played
an important role in the Greek Culture.

So now there are many cities and museums to visit.

From there Nafplio , a popular destination among the Athenians, is very close. With the

The medieval Castle with its 999 steps at the top of the hill. Thankfully you can skip the steps
and drive to the entrance of the Castle.

Note:
I think its closed on Sundays.

From Nafplio you are only 2 hours away from Gytheio.
